Christmas Light Installation Pricing
On average, homeowners pay $405 for professional installation of their exterior holiday lighting, with a typical range between $202 and $607. The light strands alone cost between $80 and $300. Installation adds another $120 to $500 to your budget. For multistory residential projects, the total price can go up to $1,500.
On Thanksgiving weekend, your neighborhood will start to light up with Christmas decorations. It brightens the lawns in the dead of winter and dresses up your home. Hiring a pro can turn your property into a showcase for the entire neighborhood while making sure the wiring and installation is safe.
Holiday Lighting Installation Costs
Most professional lighting installations range between $120 and $500 for labor alone. You can hire an individual by the hour at a rate between $60 and $100. Larger companies that bring their own lights offer packages that cost between $300 and $1,200 and include the strands, installation, and takedown.
Price of Professional Christmas Light Hanging Per Foot
Experts typically charge between $1.25 and $3 per linear foot. That includes all aspects of the installation, but not the lights themselves. If you don't own your own holiday lighting, add another $0.50 to $2 per foot to that cost depending on the type of bulb you purchase. Clarify whether the per-foot quote includes takedown after the season.
Prices by Home Size
A small ranch home may only cost $120, while a multi-story residence can range up to $1,000 for installation alone. The size of your home will be one of the largest factors in the price of your holiday lighting installation. The more space you need to cover, the more money you will spend on both lights and labor.
Holiday Light Installation Cost By Home Type
Home & Square Footage Average Installation Price
Ranch, 1,000 $120-$350
Ranch, 2,000 $200 - $400
Two-story, 1,500 $350 - $600
Two-story, 2,500 $500 - $900
Home and Property, 4,000 $700 - $1,000
Hanging on a High Roof
Expect to pay $150 to $1,200, or about 20% above regular installation prices if your roof and eaves are difficult to reach. That increased budget is due to the special equipment, like extended height ladders, your installer might have to bring for the job. Any cost increase should be mentioned in the initial quote.
Holiday Lights Wiring
If you need to install new electrical wires for the lights, hire an electrician for $50 to $100 per hour. Most installation pros won't install outlets or ground outdoor wires. They do provide extension cords and stakes to keep lighting in place.
You may choose to use timers for your holiday lights, which cost between $10 and $30 per unit. Some wreaths come with small battery packs to keep them illuminated without a cord to trip over. Some lighting may also work with battery power. Discuss options with your pro.
Christmas Lights Price List
On average, Christmas lights cost between $80 and $300. That's based on a price of $4 to $30 per strand. Most strands feature 100 to 200 bulbs. Expect to use 10 to 20 strands to cover an average-sized home between 1,000 and 2,000 square feet.
When you buy holiday lighting as part of a professional installation, you may pay by the foot. Expect anywhere between $0.50 to $2 per linear foot for the bulbs alone.
The type of lights you pick will affect the cost of installation. Options range from standard lights to LED lighting, dome bulbs, and C9 alternatives.
Expect to pay between $4 and $10 per incandescent strand. This is the traditional and most common choice of lighting. Incandescent bulbs cost the least but use more energy compared to LED and other premium options. They also burn out quickly.
Average Cost of Christmas Light Rental and Installation
If you don't want to buy the entire holiday lighting set, you can rent lights from your installer for a package price of $200 and $550 including installation. In this scenario, the expert will install their own set, and take them back down after the season is complete.
Renting Christmas lights costs more than installation alone, but less than purchasing the lighting set. That makes sense if you want to try out professional installation once. Beyond that, it can get expensive because you must pay for the lights every year. As an added benefit, you don't have to worry about storage in the off season.
DIY vs. Hiring a Professional Christmas Decorator Near You
Decorating your own home will save money. Hiring a pro for your Christmas lighting installation can be expensive, but provides significant benefits:
A plan on how to maximize the effect of the lighting.
Safe wiring that accounts for snow and water exposure.
Time-saving installation and take down To get these benefits, you have to find the right expert. Find a Christmas light installer near you, and learn about their pricing. Invite them to your property and get a quote. Then, work with them to make your home beautiful for the holiday season.
WHERE CAN I FIND CHEAP CHRISTMAS LIGHT INSTALLERS?
Most Christmas light installers quotes are based on hourly and per-foot rates, which is why they tend to be similar to each other. Cutting corners can lead to hastily installed lighting that doesn't actually look consistent or beautiful. Worse, bad wiring can endanger people and property.
Here are a few tips can help you save in good conscience:
How Do I Get the Best Price on Christmas Lights?
Even if you're looking to get the best price on your light set, don't take shortcuts. Simply buying cheaper lights means that they'll burn out faster.
Instead, buy your lights after the season. Stores sell their excess inventory around January and February. You can save up to 80% on regular prices once the new year starts.
How Much are Permanent Christmas Lights?
On average, permanent holiday lights cost around $3,500 to install. In exchange, you get decoration that lasts for years. The only additional price will be replacing your LED bulbs every four to six years.
Can I Hire an Installer to Hang Lights out of Season?
Some installation experts are available year-round. They get busiest in October and November, when most homeowners are looking forward to Christmas. Business starts to slow down in December, before January gets busy with takedown work. Between February and September, you might get lower rates.
How Many Holiday Lights Do I Need for My House?
How many light strands you need depends on your home's size and your decorating needs. Roughly, you can plan with 10 to 20 strands for a basic decoration on the exterior. Start with 100 lights for your eaves, then add 10-20 additional bulbs for each awning you want to cover. Each tree or large shrub will take between five and 10 strands.
How much does it cost cost to install Christmas lights?
Christmas lights are magical on the outside of a home, but they can be difficult to install. For a number of reasons, more people are turning to professional Christmas light services. For this example, we'll look at installing Christmas lights on the exterior of a 1500 square foot, one story home, which averages $200-$400.
Many lighting companies include the cost of renting lights in their total cost. Others will install lights you already own. For the most part, lighting installation is sold on a package-basis, with the lights and labor costs included in the total. Most light installations take around half a day, although larger projects will obviously take more time. Be sure to get estimates from multiple light installers so you know exactly what is included in the package.
Lights: Exterior Christmas lights typically range from $10-$30 per strand, depending on the style and size of the lights. Plan on 8-10 strands per house, for an average cost of $80-$300 total.
Labor: If you supply the lights yourself, plan to pay around $65-$85 per hour for the labor costs.
Take-down fees: Check to see if lighting removal after the holidays is included in your package. If not, plan to spend around half of your installation costs for removal service. For this example, it would cost $100-$200 to remove the lights.
Enhancement and improvement costs
Most lighting packages include basic LED lights. If you want to upgrade to fancier lights or multiple colors, your total could increase 20%.
Prices increase based on the number of stories of a house. The cost of installing lights on the second story is typically around twice of installing lights on the first floor.
Additional considerations and costs
Homes with lots of landscaping and large trees can increase the overall installation cost. Get multiple quotes for specific details about your house.
Some areas or neighborhoods have limitations on the amount and type of Christmas lights that can be put on a house. Be sure to check about the regulations in your area.
Many Christmas light installers book very quickly, so it is wise to schedule your installation in September to get a good time before the holidays.
How Much Does Professional Christmas Light Installation Cost?
$241 – $645 ($2 – $5 Per Foot)
Christmas lighting installation for a 1,500 square foot 1-story home costs $250 to $460, whereas a 2,000 sqft. 2-story home runs $500 to $800. Pricing includes the holiday lights and professional labor. By using your own lights, you'll save $100 to $200 on average. Get free quotes from Christmas light installers near you.
Christmas Light Installation Pricing
The average cost for professional installation of holiday lighting is $241 to $645, or between $2.81 and $4.81 per foot for both the lights and the labor. Christmas light strands range from $40 to $260, while labor and installation cost $150 to $400 with an extra 20% for difficult roofs.
Pricing depends on the number of stories in the house, the quality of the lights, if landscaping or tree lights are installed, and if there are any additional Christmas decorations. Extension cords, stakes, and timers are needed for a handyman or lighting service to install your light displays properly.
CHRISTMAS LIGHT INSTALLATION COST LAS VEGAS
National Average Cost $443
Minimum Cost $151
Maximum Cost $1,508
Average Range $241 to $645
For a grand Christmas display of beautiful, twinkling lights during the holiday season, it’ll be faster and more professional looking to hire a Christmas light installer. It is an arduous job from start to finish to plan a Christmas display, set it up, then tear it down. Of course, you want time to pack it away properly too, so that it is ready for an easy setup next year. Hiring a decorator can allow you to relax and let a pro take care of all of that.
Cost of Holiday Lighting Installed on High Roofs
Hanging Christmas lights on a high and difficult roof costs $3.50 to $6.00 per linear foot, or an extra 20% to 25%. Additional safety measures. extended ladders, and special equipment will be required which increases your overall cost. If your roof has a lot of nooks and crannies you may end up paying more, because more lights might be required.
Cost To Wrap A Tree In Lights
The average cost is $10 to $20 to wrap trees depending on the tree’s height. A palm tree with no lights on the fronds would cost $75 for up to a 20-foot-tall trunk, and a Ligustrum hedge costs $150 – $200. Large trees around 50’ can take a whole day to wrap, and a lift is required, so costs start at $1,500 just for this tree.
If you would like a beautiful spiral design that leaves some spacing between the lines, then you’re less likely to need very many strands. However, if you want the spacing tighter, so there are hardly any dark areas between the lines, then expect to pay more.
Wiring Cost to Put Up Christmas Lights
In some cases, you'll need to install new electrical wiring or outlets to power the lights. Hiring an electrician to install an outdoor outlet with a cover costs between $200 and $275. Depending on the size of your home, and types of lights being used, you may need more than one outlet installed. The professional you choose will then connect the setup to the exterior outlets using extension cords and stakes to secure the lights.
Timer – Once set up, you’ll be able to turn the lights on and off with just a few main switches. However, it can be much more energy efficient to ask your light installer to connect it all to a timer, so they all come on and switch off at the same time. Timers cost between $9 and $50 each.
Battery Powered – If you’d rather not hook your lights up to your electrical supply because you hate the thought of leaving cables outside, consider installing battery operated lights.
Average Christmas Light Rental and Installation Cost
Renting Christmas lights only costs $100 to $200 more than a basic labor-only package that uses your own lights. Packages that include lights, set-up, and takedown costs between $230 and $600 depending on the size of your home.
Plus, you won't have to deal with the takedown or storage process, or your lights no longer working after some years. The two main types of light strands are:
Incandescent Lights are $350 per 150 linear feet of lighting installed.
LED lighting is $500 per 150 linear feet of lighting installed.
